The house until recently was trading as a Bed and Breakfast. Our client saw the potential of the building and the site and seeks to convert it to a ‘forever home’, with a new extension, extensive internal refurbishments works and a comprehensive landscaping scheme to pull everything together.
Our brief was merely to create a home for the modern family dynamic!
Our design provides a modern extension with an open plan lounge/dining/family space and associated utility rooms. The first floor will has a snug, bedroom and bathroom for the grandparents (initially just while visiting). The ground floor of the original Victorian house will stay much as it is only refurbished to provide a family snug and formal dining room and secret door to the extended garage. The first floor which is now complete forms the parent’s suite with an en-suite and walk through dressing room. And office of course! The second floor will be the children’s floor with two further bedrooms, bathroom and a play room.
The whole house is/will be, fully automated and controlled via ipad’s. It is cool beyond belief! Set a lighting mood, light the fire before you get home on your phone, open or shut the curtains from your bed. It’s the future and we love it!!
The extended garage will provide more accessible parking spaces and storage for bikes. It will include a door to the garden that is linked to the kitchen area for ease of unpacking shopping!
The Garden landscaping wil provide defined spaces with the cottage garden perfect for breakfast and the morning sun. The dining terrace for family meals, the evening terrace that benefits from the last of the days sun. The lawn area for the children to play features the mandatory trampoline built into the ground to allow safe acrobatics.
